The Town of Sullivan's Island is a participating community in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), which means that you can purchase flood insurance to protect your property against the hazard of flooding.
YOU DON'T NECESSARILY HAVE TO LIVE NEAR WATER TO BE FLOODED!
The Charleston, Berkeley, Dorchester County Council of Governments (CBD-COG) and the local County Library has obtained and cataloged copies of the most recent Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM), Flood Boundary and Flood Map, FEMA's booklets on FIRMS, and several documents on flood insurance, protecting a building from flooding and community flood hazard mitigation.
Community Rating System (CRS)
The National Flood Insurance Program's (NFIP) Community Rating System (CRS) is a voluntary incentive program that recognizes and encourages community floodplain management activities that exceed the minimum NFIP requirements. As a result, flood insurance premium rates are discounted to reflect the reduced flood risk resulting from the community actions meeting the three goals of the CRS: (1) reduce flood losses; (2) facilitate accurate insurance rating; and (3) promote the awareness of flood insurance. The lower the number on the CRS class rating, the higher the flood insurance premium discounts to the citizens.
